In this trimester, we learnt how to use After Effect to create 3D animation in space and be familiar with the toolbar inside the workplace.
Unfortunately….I can’t open the work which I finished in the class properly….it was showing me the collapse images…… 😥
Therefore, I did some research and practice for this LO and also for myself to develop my own skill.
I am going to give you a brief about what I am going to show you in this animation process through After Effect. This short animation will be in a snow forest scene with the sunrise!
Firstly, I am setting the background and the sky for preparing to composite.
In this step, I set up and animated the trees individually and creating a composition of trees with the sky and ground.
The third step was duplicating the precom of trees to create the forest! The left side of the picture have 2 views-vertical which can be seen on the top angle and active camera angle, it is convenient setting to know how is the object direction goes on in the scene. I also post the full-screen top view showing clearly the duplicating process of the trees.
Then star the lighting setting.
…….Adding camera and a null object, then adding the lens flare……but I have a really big issue in this “adding the lens flare"…:'( I spent almost half day trying to find “knoll light factory lens designer" in “Effect"…..but I can’t find it and create the beautiful light effect for my animation…..so I was just simply create the light on the sky…..it’s pity 😛
Above picture is adjusting the speed graph on the timeline, which can create smoother movement in an animation.
Final video rendered!! 🙂
